Well, the regular travellers of the Mumbai-Ahmedabad Highway faced a similar situation. But, if you are one of these travellers, then we have some good news for you! The new Versova-Mira-Bhayandar four-lane bridge is all set to open soon.

New Versova-Mira-Bhayandar four-lane Bridge To Open Next Year

There’s a new Versova bridge that is going to open soon in Mira-Bhayandar. This bridge is set to open within the first three months of the year 2023. This will provide some much-needed relief from traffic congestion to the daily commuters of the Mumbai-Ahmedabad Highway.

The Mumbai-Ahmedabad Highway connects two major cities in the country. As such, the traffic volume on the highway is high, especially between Mumbai and Surat. This is why the National Highway Authorities of India (NHAI) resolved to create another bridge consisting of four lanes. The bridge cost around 247 crores to build and the stone-laying ceremony was attended by Devendra Fadnavis, the then Chief Minister of Maharashtra. Rajan Vichare, the MP, also visited the site of the bridge a couple of days back to review its progress.
